From August '16 to June '17 I'd been working on this project. A ton of planning, time & effort was put into it. I wanted to show my hometown, Staten Island in a new light & make people reconsider their thoughts of it as New York City's "forgotten borough". It got quite a large amount of recognition just within 2 days including 3 articles and a bunch of collaborative opportunities. New York 1 then reached out to interview me. It's been a crazy ride and it's only the beginning!

New York 1 Interview







Project Total Time: 8 Months: 3 months location scouting, 5 months shooting, 3 hours of footage, 1 week of editing.

Excellent video. Your location scouting and planning really showed. Just out of interest, would you mind sharing the camera settings you used on your aircraft (I assume it was the Mavic)?

Hi Matthew,  got to say a big thank you. Excellent work which is now starting to pay off for you.

This work, the time taken, the editing and your commitment to getting it done, seeing it through should be used by all of us as an inspiration to what can be achieved with a tool we all share in the enjoyment of.

Genuinely looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Fantastic effort, great video footage, superb editing.

Exactly. This is what we need; exposure of the good things that responsible pilots can do.

looks amazing - do you mind sharing your remote control settings? i've been trying to learn how to get a stable image but when you move forward the drone likes to pitch forward - even with the gimbal, it's a bit "odd" - so i've relegated to flying backwards - I've also tried to slow tilt by using head turning on the dji goggles for recording, but i can't figure out how to do smooth fly bys / rotation shots

Matthew you have an excellent footage but you need to upgrade your PC's graphic card (video card ).

Overall, the video was very good.

Yes, when the video seems like there is a kind of frame goes by frame, this means there were dropped frames during editing. Those dropped frames occures due to either weakness in the editing application or (mostly) due to the PC's video card that un able to deal with high resolution like 2.7 and higher so some frames will drop from the output. You can see these results clearly when watching a car movings

Check your PC's graphic card, If it is less than 4 GB then you're better edit video for HD output. If 4 GB go for FHD output. 6 GB go for K 2.7 and 8 GB for 4k.

Very nice work and some really good thoughts behind it. I think we in general need more of this kind of footage, or more presentation/packaging which you have done here.
